TAG Heuer is a Swiss company manufacturing luxury watches and fashion accessories. The company was founded in 1860 under the name Uhrenmanufaktur Heuer AG by Edouard Heuer in Switzerland. It was not until 1985 when TAG Group took over the major shareholder of the company that TAG Heuer was formed. TAG Heuer is the combination of TAG (belongs to TAG Group) and the surname of the founder.

Their watches possess a rich history of continual innovations. The brand is well-known for their precision timekeeping and their strong connection with sporting events, especially automobile racing. Their watches were used in at the Antwerp, Paris and Amsterdam Olympics in the 1920s. The brand has been a partner with the Red Bull Racing Formula One team since 2016. As having a root in sport, TAG Heuer has been developing the chronograph for better support in sporting activities. In 1916, the company produced a stopwatch whose accuracy reaches 1/100 of a second. The launch of Monaco watch in 1969 was a huge surprise for the market since it was the world’s first automatic chronograph. The square case design and water resistance up to 100 meters made this watch an icon and a legend of TAG Heuer watch portfolio.

TAG Heuer uses calfskin and alligator for their wristband. The company owns private breeding farms that provide them with the leather materials. The bands go through tough quality tests for the durability and toughness before being released. Leather straps are the most classic type for TAG Heuer timepieces. This material also looks good on such a luxury watch.
